Peru: Arequipa – Arequipa Cathedral at Night

Next city In Peru – Arequipa. The most spectacular building here is undoubtedly the Cathedral of Arequipa, taking the entire side of an otherwise massive Plaza de Armas. It was built in 1656 from sillar – a local white volcanic rock. Multiple earthquakes and fires have destroyed it several time but it was rebuilt and restored and rose from the ashes every single time. It is spectacularly lit at night and is a sight to see. Restaurants occupy the second floor of the rectangular place and offer perfect views at the illuminated building of the cathedral.
